Women tell New York Times Donald Trump touched them inappropriately

NEW YORK — The New York Times published interviews Wednesday with two women who say were touched inappropriately by Donald Trump without permission.

Jessica Leeds and Rachel Crooks both are publicly accusing Trump in the paper, whose website includes a three-minute video of Leeds detailing the incident.

She told The Times she encountered Trump on a flight three decades ago. Leeds said that he grabbed her breasts and put his hand up her skirt.

Rachel Crooks of Ohio told the newspaper she met Trump at Trump Tower in 2005. Crooks says Trump kissed her "directly on the mouth" against her will.

The Times reports both women told others about what happened with Trump.

Trump denies the accusations. He tells the Times, "None of this ever took place."

After The Times published the story, Trump threatend to sue the paper.
